I don’t have a fancy system in terms of audio out - just a simple workhorse M-Audio Audiophile card and I use analog, not digital audio out. Every time I fire up my Cubase and scrub or play anything in the projects, it’s so freakin’ loud compared to any other program I use on my Win7 PC, including my Sony Vegas Pro NLE (video and audio editor) – I have to dive for the transport volume slider or turn my speakers down almost to off for I don’t want to blow them. The Cubase transport volume is set at its default “75%” position upon project launches.
I’m guessing this is a very basic setup issue:
Q: How do I make Cubase be essentially “normalized” to match everything else I play on my system? Not just per-project, but on a global basis so that any and all projects work this way.
